Fall Writing Festival – The Voices You Hear Have a Story to Tell – G18105

Workshop ID: G18105

Charles Dickens claimed that all of his characters spoke to him, and that he wrote down what they said. He was even harassed by a character, NOT in the story he was working on at the time, and just had to put her into the novel. Henry Miller started every writing day with his hands on his typewriter keys saying, “Okay. I’m listening.” Why can’t this method apply to playwriting, particularly, since plays are made with and by voices? What if you started with the voices and let the plot arise out of what “they” seem to want? Use exercises to encourage the letting go, the freedom and the safety needed to “let the play happen.”

Important Note: Single Occupancy is unavailable.
